EPA to City Governments: Implement Better Stormwater Solutions Today

While flooding is preventable through effective stormwater solutions, floodwaters are still regular problems for known flood-prone cities like Baton Rouge, Louisiana, as well as other locales throughout the nation. In fact, only a few inches of rain in the Baton Rouge area were needed last May 9th to fully submerge several streets in floodwaters, which was aggravated two days later when water levels rose even higher to fill up parking lots and make cars crawl through ponding water.

  1. Hi Sharon, thanks for your comment on my blog. We are back to normal at our place since hurricane Arthur but just this morning there were still some power outages in our city of Fredericton N.B. ,Canada where I live, due to broken limbs falling on some power lines.
    We live close to the river so we are also prone to flooding in the spring. There has been more flooding in recent years due to the Mactaquac Dam and extreme weather.
